*******However - when one delves into the nitty gritty of nature and what SHE teaches, it becomes obvious that these systems of control based on patriarchy, baal, lording over the land, control, domination, empire, etc. are not what is found. What is found is that our communities and the local eco-system that they are tied to are inextricably intertwined and that if we are going to create stable, secure, lasting communities we HAVE to work within the boundaries that we have thought to ignore through our arrogance. *******
That is word/power but it is missing one SIGNIFICANT aspect. The mindset and subsequent actions of WMS MUST be eradicated. There is no getting around it. And that is what Greenism attempts. It attempts to deny the devastation of the entirety and pinpoint only certain greedy or exploitative components.
Its just like how you posted about the prosecution of only individual banking exploiters/scammers...the WHOLE DEAL is corrupt and exploitative.
So is white/male supremacy. A transition to the lifeboat is just as poisonous if there is a white male who feels that he is entitled to rule/lead.
It would be the white male standing up and cueing ones on reciting "Kumbaaya" for pete's sake.
Greenness and community agriculture ignore the root/source of the problems, thus the problem will only re-fester in different forms.
I don't believe in putting new fancy clothes on a dirty body.
